PSA: Monaco III w/ Bigsby


Recommended Posts

It's Tortoise.

And a freakin' steal at that price. That's a total custom piece going for less than a straight catalog model.

Very nice.

Interesting. I wonder how the P-90s sound with the maple and scale length - I'm thinkin' "bright."

Here is what Tortoise looks like, from Willcutt's inventory:

My plain old red spruce MIII has plenty of snap and brightness...I'll bet the maple tops are hot!

The price is a steal...someone should liberate that from the fools at GC

Actually, on this monitor it looks more Brown Sugar than Tort...

What a price! Some of the quilt III's had Korina backs- wonder if the one above did.

Private Reserve (Musician's Friend) sold this one discounted for $3799:

I'll admit it, it was me. I couldn't stand it, been looking for an M3 for a while, wanted a bigsby and a unique finish, and there it was. My first quilt top. In the highly unlikely event I do not bond with it, I will let you all know. I also have an original HFC run artist korina w/3 p90s and the always controversial p90 duotone. 8 p90s, 3 hamers, 1 happy guy.

Great score. Give us a tone report once you get it, eh?

Got it yesterday, will check it out through an amp today. So far, so good. Beautiful guitar, loud acoustically, great neck. It looks brand new, all the case candy, warranty card, etc. The color on the card looks like "TT", whatever that is. The binding is very intricate, tortoise outside, then a thin white stripe and a thin black stripe. Gorgeous, the Hamer logo is pearl, etc.
